Bless Hackney. Last night there was a fire somewhere near the railway arches, and today the streets around are blocked off because nearby gas canisters might go off. I had to sign a disclaimer to get back in after walking Amber to the bus stop.
I was quite excited because the policeman was straight out of The Bill. He helpfully pointed out that the disclaimer wasn’t worth much because he had all the forms on him and he’d be the first to go if there was an explosion.
